  • 10 ounces lamb loin
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 1/2 tsp olive or avocado oil

Pan Roasted Asparagus:

  • 2 tbsp olive or avocado oil divided
  • 0.3 ounces minced garlic
  • 3 ounces mixed cherry tomatoes halved
  • 0.7 ounces sliced black olives
  • 6 ounces asparagus spears
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 0.5 ounces shredded Parmesan



  1. Liberally salt and pepper lamb. In a large skillet over medium high heat, add the oil. When oil begins to shimmer, add lamb loin and cook, turning once, until browned all over, about 2 to 4 minutes per side.
  2. Transfer to a carving board and tent with foil.

Asparagus & Tomatoes:

  1. In the same skillet over medium heat, add 1 tbsp olive oil and the garlic. Sauté 30 seconds. Stir in tomatoes and olives and cook, stirring frequently, for 2 minutes. Transfer to a mixing bowl.
  2. Turn heat to medium high. Add remaining oil and the asparagus in a single layer. Cover and cook until asparagus is bright green, about 4 minutes. Uncover and increase heat to high. Season with salt and pepper and cook, turning with tongs, until browned on the edges and tender. Remove to a plate and squeeze lemon over. Top with tomato mixture and parmesan cheese.
